BETA PHOTO: North Wall of The Y

Description 

The north side of the Y is where most of the climbs in this area are located. This side of the cliff is sunny for most of the day in the summer, but is shaded in the winter because the sun is low enough to be obscured by the south side of the canyon. You can set TRs or build anchors before scrambling down to the base; the descent is 3rd class and is easy to find by following the trail from the top to the west.

Routes left of Triple Overhang are generally considered no-no's because of petroglyphs in this section.


Getting There 

The North side of the Y is the cliff whose top you come to by hiking south 1 minute from the parking along the highway. To drop into the Y, go to the east, and find a 3rd class downclimb.
